Lorn Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

And bad dreams
In a cool world
Full of cruel things
Hang tight
All you
Nothing like a big bad bridge
To go burning through

And bad dreams
In a cool world
Full of cruel things
Hang tight
All you
Nothing like a big bad bridge
To go burning through

How Lorn made a sound from the deep dark depths of the abyss is amazing.

Edit: I made this comment specifically about Lorns deep, moody artistic style which can be found in all his productions. From this song, to 'Anvil,' to 'Timesink,' to 'Sega Sunset.'

Where he pulls from a depth of emotion that is visceral and moving.

I wasn't mentioning anything religious or kabbalistic, no. Nothing strange... no nonsense. Innocent comment.

This art is just real, raw emotion that we universally experience. Speaking to the ineffable transience of life, and the courageous acceptance of it.

SubSpace Scout

This is timeless & existential.

We’ll be watching this again many, many years from now and it’ll still feel the same way like the first time.

¿Remember the first time you saw this video?

Exactly, just like that.

LORN, you are a gift to us from The Musical Gods.
& we thank you.

You know it's a masterpiece when you can't even explain what you actually feel while listening it.

This video has always, always disturbed the hell out of me, but I absolutely adore it in some special way. I Even reached out to the main dancer to tell her how amazing I think this video is...

But by God, it IS eerie... 🥺🌺🥺

I am an ICU doctor and I have seen many people fight for their life but eventually die. This dance echoes what I feel when I watch the strange fluctuation of fight, pain, fear, fading hope and ultimately a sadness but acceptance to go into the unknown.

Incredible comment.  

For whatever reason, when I listen to this song and feel the music flow through my body, I feel like this is coming to in the doorway between life and death, and being in between both worlds, and deciding which one to step into. I wonder if Lorn was in this place when he created this. I've felt this way for years when listening to this song, and it's something to read your comment, coming from someone who has seen so many people in what sounds like this very place. Thank you for sharing stuffesen.

The mind and consciousness that created this music is amazing, I've never experienced anything like it. Different, but the same depth, to me anyway, is Noisia's "Tommy's Theme."

This was an amazing read. Thank you.


almost as if it's a Danse Macabre, some call it "dance macabre" , the last dance before it all goes to the unknown.
